When your child is in the hospital for an extended stay, or dealing with a chronic or life-threatening condition, it’s important to have a strong support system of family and friends. Many times however, keeping everyone updated turns into an overwhelming chore, which is why we offer CaringBridge.
What is CaringBridge?
CaringBridge is a web-based tool you can use to tell the world, or just a select few, what’s happening, how your child is doing, and how you’re feeling. In just a few clicks, you can create your own easy-to-use website to post photos, keep an online journal, and read guestbook messages from friends. The service is free to use, although donations are always welcome.
For Patients and Families at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital
You can find computers with Internet access in:

You can also ask your social worker or Child Life Specialist for a laptop to use, thanks to our partnership with KINfolk.
